... the tales of two sisters

Dana lives in Seattle, and Tracie lives in Germany. We are businesswomen, writers and humorists. We write about life, dating, and today's modern women.

Start Me Up!

They met at the age of 4 and went on to write over 200 songs together.
I grew up on some of these hits and many a day, I have belted “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”,”Honky Tonk Woman”, “Start me up.” “Brown Sugar” and “Beast of Burden.”
Of course, I’m talking about Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Imagine collaborating at the age of less than a handful and the prolific lyrics are now a gift to the generations.

For this Menopausebarbee, their timeless sound and funky lyrics came full circle as my 15 year old daughter wore her favorite Stones t-shirt to school.
I pulled out my senior year book and showed her my Rolling Stones ticket concert from the 1980’s at the Kingdome. For a whopping $16, I was on the 100 level.

I was beyond Satisfaction that we could share this history and cross generation of timeless tunes.

Happy weekend to all my Honky Tonk sisters and Don’t Make a Grown Man Cry!
